Dining with Diabetes is a program for adults with type 2 diabetes or pre-diabetes and their families that will increase knowledge of healthy food choices and diabetes management. The classes offer healthy meal planning, food demonstrations, class discussions, and new physical activity choices.

Class Details

Trained Extension Educators, in consultation with registered dietitians and diabetes educators, will lead discussions addressing:

  • Important numbers you need to know
  • Planning healthy meals
  • Healthy food preparation
  • Physical activity

Consecutive classes are held with a three-month follow-up. Each class offers food demonstrations and tasting, physical activity and ideas to take home, and discussions regarding important information to help you manage your diabetes. In addition to program related booklets, participants will receive the Dining with Diabetes cookbook and have the option of having their A1C tested at the first and follow-up classes. A1c is a non-fasting blood test obtained by a finger stick. Results show a three-month average blood glucose level.

This program is part of a research study and participants will be asked to complete study-related materials, should they choose to participate in the study. Participation in the study is not required to attend the class.

Scholarships and financial aid funds are available to a qualified number of participants. Please click on the Cost tab above for detailed cost of participation in this program.

If you have been told that you have Type 2 diabetes, you will want to attend this class!

Partial funding is provided by local, state, and/or national grants.

Great Class

I just started taking class and I think it's wonderful. I didn't know i was pre-diabetic. I had felt off for awhile but wasn't sure what was wrong. I took the a1c and there it was-6.0. I wonder how long I would have gone before finding out if i hadn't taken this class and a lot more damage could have been done. The teacher is very smart, kind and engaging.
